Bucks point guard Tyler Ennis is still waiting for the green light to get back onto the basketball floor.

After undergoing labrum surgery on his right shoulder in May, Ennis said Monday that he still hasn't received medical clearance from the team to participate in contact drills.

"We're still looking at that." Ennis said regarding his timetable for the next few weeks. "I know I'll still be able to do the majority of stuff in camp. I'm still waiting to get cleared for contact. I'm just playing it day by day and waiting for the medical staff to clear me."

Ennis was included with Michael Carter-Williams and Miles Plumlee in the trade deadline deal that sent Brandon Knight to Phoenix. He played sparingly in 25 games for the Bucks, mostly sitting behind Carter-Williams and veteran Jerryd Bayless.

In other injury news, Damien Inglis confirmed Monday that he will be ready for the Bucks' first preseason game on Oct. 6 in Chicago. Inglis missed the entire 2014-15 season with a foot injury he sustained during his pre-draft workout with Oklahoma City last May. He played in summer league but still wasn't 100 percent.

"Right now I just feel good and I'm ready to go," Inglis said.

Forward Jabari Parker was upbeat on Monday but didn't give a concrete answer regarding whether or not he will be a full go for practice tomorrow in Madison. Could he be on a minutes restriction?

"I go within the hours and whatever I'm able to complete," Parker explained, "I can't predict anything."
